Millions of tons of explosives are used each year to get minerals and metals out of the ground that we all use in our daily lives. These are minerals that make our food tastier, precious metals that our computers and cell phones need to function properly and materials used to build buildings and pave our roads.

Explosives engineers, the people who work with these explosives, are skilled, highly trained workers who take every precaution to ensure the safety of those in a blasting area and the surrounding communities.

If you live in a community where blasting is occurring, the World of Explosives will help walk you through the procedures and protocols blasters follow before a shot takes place.
